A brief entry from my journal caught my eye earlier today and I thought I had to share it.
I am in the habit of trying to learn some small amount of the native language. No matter how basic. I like to be able to say hello, please, thank you etc. and so I collected a few Norwegian phrases as usual.
I already speak a little bit of Swedish so these phrases were quite easy for me to pick up.
It was an incomplete least.
It turns out the only phrase I really needed to know for my time in Norway was “No Sir, I am not a drug dealer and I do not have amphetamines I would like to sell you”. I wish I could say this was an isolated occurrence but apparently I just have the vibe of a Norwegian drug dealer – but more on that to follow.
For now enjoy the simple and I’m sure misspelled Norwegian phrasebook
